Introduced in 3.8 litre form in 1961, the Jaguar E-Type caused a sensation when it appeared with instantly classic lines and 150mph top speed. While, inevitably, the car's stupendous straight-line performance and gorgeous looks grabbed the headlines, there was a lot more to the E-Type beneath the skin. The newcomer's design owed much to that of the racing D-Type and, indeed, the E-Type would be one of the last great sports cars developed directly from a successful competition ancestor. Just as in the D-Type, a monocoque tub formed the main body/chassis structure while a tubular space frame extended forwards to support the engine. The latter was the same 3.8-litre, triple-carburettor, 'S' unit first offered as an option on the preceding XK150. With a claimed 265 horsepower on tap, the E-Type's performance did not disappoint. Firstly, because it weighed around 500lb less than the XK150 and secondly, because aerodynamicist Malcolm Sayer used experience gained with the D-Type to create one of the most elegant and efficient shapes ever to grace a motor car.This beautiful E-Type Roadster was originally manufactured in November 1963 for export to the USA. The car which still retains all of its original body panels due to spending most of its life in California was repatriated to the UK and first registered here in 2014. This example has recently undergone a full bare metal respray in Signal Red as well as a complete interior re-trim in biscuit leather, including a new hood and , as a consequence, presents fabulously.

Coupled to the cosmetic work, other recent improvements have included, the installation of renowned Jaguar specialist M & C Wilkinson fast-road 3.8 litre engine, incorporating big valve head with high-lift cams, forged pistons and lightened/balanced flywheel with a new Rob Beere supplied clutch. The engine is coupled to a later 4.2 litre all synchromesh E-type gearbox, making it a quick and more driveable car with output circa 300bhp, running on new triple Weber carbs with a new Ecosse six branch big bore exhaust. The front suspension and rear suspension have all been set up using Polybushes and, we are told, all elements of the car have either been overhauled or replaced so now "on the button and ready to go and enjoy".Within the history file is a Heritage Certificate and an MoT test certificate valid until August 2018. This is an evocative beautiful example of the iconic 3.8 litre Roadster with all the trappings of performance and drivability that owners may covet, with Series I prices still rising, this represents a properly quick and extremely well engineered example.
